According to the blogger, the idea was to introduce the phone with the Dimensity 9000, but the company changed to the Dimensity 9000+. This processor is MediaTek’s response to Qualcomm’s Plus flagship series. It brings incremental performance upgrades over the vanilla Dimensity 9000. The tipster also reveals other details of the phone. According to him, the device will feature a new Full HD+ resolution with a 120 Hz refresh rate and an eye-protecting gaming filter. The device will also bring a 50 MP IMX766 main camera, and 120 W of fast charging. Furthermore, the device will come with an optical fingerprint scanner, linear motor, NFC, and infrared remote control functions.

According to him, the phone will get a late release, but will not exceed October. He previously said that the two additional snappers will be a little worse than the iQOO Neo6. Instead of a 12 MP ultrawide shooter, the new phone will bring an 8 MP module. The 2 MP depth sensor on the iQOO Neo 7 will remain the same as the previous model.
To recall the iQOO Neo 6 was released on April 13 this year with a starting price of CNY 2,799. Under the hood, it brought the vanilla Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 6.62-inch AMOLED panel, 4,700 mAh battery with 80 W fast-charging. The iQOO Neo 7 tends to be a slight upgrade, but we are curious about the availability. So far, it’s hard to find any Dimensity 9000 / Dimensity 9000+ smartphone outside of China.
